    We got 2 baby ducklings about a montg ago.. The first week one died over night. Now a month or so later. Or baby has this weird random seizure thing (only when i get home from work and lift up her house/box) after a few seconds shes back to normal eating, playing amd drinking. She has random hard poo and diarrhea... Ideas?!

    Have you read this? https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/750869/raising-and-caring-for-ducklings#post_10611711

    What is the duckling eating? Sounds like B vitamin deficiency, which can be helped by supplementing the food with a tablespoon of brewer's yeast (not baking yeast) per cup of food. Ducklings also need food with water 24/7 for the first couple of months or so.

    Please tell us more about the bedding, the temperature, water, etc.
